Elite and second division players are demanding that team owners raise the minimum wage.
There is no more professional football in Uruguay. The country, which won the World Cup twice, stopped hosting local championships.
Since September 7, elite and second division games have not taken place due to the football players’ strike. This was reported by The Athletic.
The reason for the suspension of the championship was the refusal of the club owners to give concessions to the players. Among the proposals was an increase in the minimum salary for performers from the second division, which was met with a categorical rejection from the owners.
Darwin Nunez, Jose Maria Jimenez and other players of the Uruguayan national team supported their lesser partners.
“We believe it is necessary to carry out a reform that will give priority to the main asset of football, which is none other than footballers, so that they can develop their profession in a decent environment and fair working conditions,” said the national team. in a statement.
We remind you that earlier it became known about a scandal in Naples, because of which the main star could leave the team.
